Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010
What is the purpose of the Measure?
The Measure takes forward our commitment to tackling child poverty. It provides greater support to families where children may be at risk and strengthens regulatory enforcement in childcare settings.
The Measure covers three main subject areas:
- Child poverty, play and participation;
- Child minding and day care for children;
- Integrated family support teams.
What are the benefits of the Measure?
The Measure aims to improve the lives of vulnerable children and families in Wales and the lives of those disadvantaged by poverty. It will enable support to be provided to those families and children in the greatest need who, without additional support, would be unfairly disadvantaged within our society.
Part 2 of the Measure consolidates all existing primary legislation in relation to childminding and daycare in one place, making it more accessible both to lawyers and to those using and providing childminding and daycare services.
